Short  Meaning -
    In this pasuram, Anda:l is showing the worldly material results to those who allow them to do the Vratham, though, the main result of this Vratham is to enjoin Lord Krishna only.  Let us sing the glorious name of the one who measured this whole universe with His feet in Thrivikrama incarnation.  We shall call it vratham and if we follow it  taking the Divine shower  in the early hours then, there won't be any calamities to anybody, anywhere in the whole world.  There will be rains once every 10 days thus,  thrice every month.  Paddy grows extremely well. As there is no scarcity of water and the fields are full of waters, fishes in the water jump across the paddy branches.  In those water sheds, the lotus like kaluva flowers blossom and in them the big bees rest, with their stomachs filled with the plenty of honey. If  Courageous, strong and persevering persons hold the milching sacs of the cow and once start to sqeeze milk then, at once, all the pots that were brought will get filled with the milk given by those extremely generous great cows.  Everyone will be blessed with such plenty of wealths, come on !  This is our Vratham let us follow.
